This simple garland made of woven palm leaf stars has become one of my favorite Christmas decorations. You can see a strand in action in my apartment here.
At $11 for two 14 foot sets, they're an easy and affordable way to brighten your home during the holidays. Plus, they're made in Bangladesh through a fair trade network. Just be sure to wrap the strands around a box when you're packing up - those stars can get tangled amazingly fast.
